CCS is actively monitoring and responding to the recommendations of the Public Health Agency of Canada regarding coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
The Canadian Cancer Society's SunSense program provides children, families, teachers and caregivers with age appropriate sun safety information and materials to help Manitobans make informed sun safety decisions. The SunSense program is available at no charge and is an excellent teaching tool for Manitoba schools, preschools and daycares, Regional Health Authority programs, sports camps, youth groups, summer programs, pools and other recreation venues.
The need for sun safety is great. Skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in people 15 – 29 years of age and incidence is increasing.
On behalf of the SunSense Team, we thank you very much for your interest in our sun safety program. It is important to all of us to help you educate Manitoban children, families and caregivers on how to prevent and reduce their risk of developing skin cancer. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
